Have you seen a north Indian party menu or a restaurant without a paneer delicacy in main course? Yes, me neither. The versatile, vegetarian powerhouse of protein is perhaps one dish that we cannot do without. Be it in snacks, main course or even desserts, paneer (cottage cheese) has made a permanent place in almost every meal and in our hearts too. And while we can gush about paneer tikka, paneer rolls or paneer pakodas for all day long, it is the luscious, creamy, and spicy Indian paneer curries that never fail to be the star on the dinner table, competing (and often winning) with its non-vegetarian counterparts!
Kadhai paneer, matar paneer, palak paneer, butter paneer masala, the list is endless; but, well, we can go only one at a time! And if you have tried all of the above delicacies, don’t worry, the versatility of cottage cheese doesn’t end there. We have a mouth-watering recipe of Handi Paneer which isn’t just delicious but is also super easy and quick to make at home.
